SPD vs Mach

Recommended Posts

When I'm descending and the FCU speed window is in the Mach mode, how should I order the F/O to change speed?

I ordered in knots saying e.g. 'pull speed 290' but the speed was still shown in Mach and I saw no difference until I manually changed from Mach into SPD.

Only then I could monitor the F/O changing next speed values according to what I was telling him using the '... speed XXX' phrase.


So the question is: do I have to manually switch from Mach to SPD, can I somehow order the F/O to do it or is it a kind of bug as the F/O is expected to do it on his own?

We don't currently handle Mach


OK, thanks Bryan. Not a big deal really.

Such details mean little compared to the quality you offer with your product.

I'll add it in a future update


Fantastic, Bryan!

Thank you very much in advance.


it's something hardly anyone would use


I know, I know. I'm just too hard core sometimes and I happen to be a pain in my own ass_zpscefd56d9.jpg .

Actually I still like clicking this autopilot stuff from time to time!
